Hillwalking Unit

As well as continuing to run our usual weekends for all those interested in developing their hillwalking skills, ideally with the objective of being able to take young people on the hills themselves, in 2019 there will be a training weekend for those wanting to lead hillwalking in winter conditions (snow, ice and generally below freezing) and a hillwalking weekend for Explorers.

While many of the weekends will be in mountainous areas such as Snowdonia, the Brecon Beacons and the Pennines, many of the necessary skills can be practised elsewhere so some of the weekends will be more local areas such as the Chilterns.  While the intention is for a progressive series of weekends culminating in assessment for a hillwalking permit, each weekend will be tailored to the needs of those on it.

The programme for early 2019 is:

Ropework Workshop: 12 January 2019 1-3pm
